Remember the scene in Home Alone where Kevin is told to go "pack his suitcase"...and he immediately freaks?! That's kind of the look that happens in my house when I say those words...although I seem to be the one freaking. Because I'm a total type-A personality and can't handle giving up that much control...sometimes (okay, all the time). These lists are fabulous for crazy moms like me that feel the need to be packing those kids right up until the day they leave for college. They're a great way to start teaching kids the basics of laying out clothes, toiletries, and other goodies for trips. Grab your kids' checklists below.

Hysterical. As I was creating the girl version of this list last week, I decided to ask my Facebook friends for help. Did I mention it was hysterical? Yeah...and I thought I would have heart palpitations over the sheer magnitude of items my friends who are girl moms started listing. So, I made this list as a little joke to share in that thread. I thought it would be fun to share it here, too>>>

So, after some thought, I simplified a bit. I honestly intended this just as a guideline...at least that's how we've started using this in my house. I can write in the number of items my kids need to lay out and then I come back and edit before doing the final pack up. They have a say in the clothing and everything and then I just...you know, do a few touch ups (or in some cases...a lot...but, it's all about their learning experience). It's perfect for about ages five to ten or so...it has cartoon shapes for younger kiddos who are just starting to read.

Again, these are just learning tools to help the kiddos. Feel free to use it as you deem appropriate for your own family. Here's an example of how I would fill this out (on one of the girl lists):

I love using my self-adhesive sheets to laminate these at home (no special tools, yay!). They make it so easy to use these with dry erase markers. They're perfect for the travel section in the home binder that we're working on. I get the laminating sheets here from Amazon.

  9. HI this is awesome. Would you be able to add Raincoat to the clothing list and make shoes slashed with jandals? ie. shoes/jandals. Under other stuff pens and paper would be useful as well as deodorant (for those 10 year olds who are starting to smell!). Also pillow. Thanks.
